When Lieutenant Lawrence Miller first sees USS Bacalao in the builder's yard in late 1940, the submarine is little more than a pile of curved steel plates. During the next few months, Miller watches the boat take shape and the crew gather from throughout the fleet. By late 1941, Bacalao is in commission and assigned to the Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor. Then, on a Sunday morning, everything changes, as the Japanese sneak attack plunges the United States into World War II.
A collection of new one-act plays, on such subjects as the fate of Jack the Ripper, just why Claudius killed Hamlet's father, the motives of an obsessive-compulsive killer with a computer fixation, a brother and sister at their father's funeral, and a 45-year marriage starting to come apart as the husband begins to forget his life. Written by the author of Coming Out, these five plays are a wonderful addition to any night of one-acts.
